The Forestry Commission’s National Arboretum at Westonbirt is once again embracing the festive spirit with the much-anticipated return of its magical Enchanted Christmas event, which illuminates the popular attraction into a dramatic winter wonderland.
Taking place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening from the last weekend of November to the weekend before Christmas, the spectacular illuminated trail through the trees creates a magical experience for the whole family!
The trail itself is pushchair and wheelchair friendly and features interactive displays to engage all the family. There will be a packed programme throughout the event, including Christmas-themed entertainment, festive goodies, hog roast, toasted chestnuts, classic carols, enchanting stilt walkers, a traditional children’s carousel, and some very special guests.
Seasonal craft activities will keep creative visitors busy in the learning centre at the end of the trail. Children can make willow stars, glitter cones or reindeer trees – which all make great personal presents for family and friends.
